Year 7 Cookery At Shapwick School

This term our focus is on Street Food. We are able to observe, cook, clear up and eat the delicious food cooked in our one hour sessions, even if it is at times by the skin of our teeth!

Year 7 Cookery Shapwick School

The students have already cooked; burgers (completely from scratch), pancakes filled with Nutella and this week Soda Bread which requires no kneading or proving. We are planning to cook homemade soup next week which will involve knife skills and chopping, I feel a sleepless night may precede this for me!

We will be looking at different foods from around the world, but by necessity, all will involve speedy preparation and cooking. I am impressed by the wealth of culinary talent around me; hopefully some of them may make a future career based on these early experiences or at least will gain valuable life skills.
